Drive Your Own Opportunity: Professional Careers at Idaho’s Largest CPA and Advisory Firm:

No matter where you find yourself on your career journey, you’ll appreciate the opportunities at Cooper Norman to set your own course for a rewarding professional or CPA career. Our growing team of more than 70 top-tier professionals serves businesses large and small from 4 beautiful locations in Idaho, and we are proud to have earned Inside Public Accounting’s top award in 2019 for excellence in firm culture.

Cooper Norman is recognized as a leading advisor to businesses in agriculture, construction and healthcare. Small enough to feel like family, we still have great scope of opportunity for challenging work and growing responsibility, and provide access to benefits typically found only at larger firms.

Launching Your Career

Recent college graduates who join Cooper Norman cite access to a wide variety of work assignments and outstanding potential for career growth as big draws to the firm. In order to develop your CPA career, we’ll make sure you get experience across all specialty areas – tax, audit and assurance, forensic accounting, valuation – and the chance to work directly with clients in different sectors. Then you can decide if, and how, you want to specialize.

At Cooper Norman, there’s no rote, pre-defined path that every new employee must follow. Find where you thrive, both professionally and personally, and let’s work together to shape a role that serves both you and the firm.

We Welcome Mid-career Professionals

Over the years, we’ve found ourselves a magnet for mid-career professionals ready to make a change. In three words, the attraction is very often work-life balance. Throughout the firm, there’s flexibility to define your own version of work-life balance, with teams that evolve to support changing needs.

We value the technical and industry experience you bring to the table, and encourage you to set your own pace for advancement – so you can pursue professional growth and still manage a rewarding life outside of work.

As importantly, you’ll work directly with clients sooner than you would at a larger firm. You might find an industry specialty or niche service area you’d like to pursue. In every case, you gain the opportunity to build strong relationships with key people, and earn the satisfaction of truly helping their businesses thrive.

A Customized Approach to Career Development

What does the ideal career look like to you? At Cooper Norman, you have many paths from which to choose – whether you are a CPA career seeker or a member of our professional staff – and the firm’s commitment to genuine mentoring at all levels.

We prefer to grow our team internally, so we’re dedicated to individual development and employee growth. You’ll experience hands-on training across the board – from some of the best in the industry – and firm leaders who are open and willing to assist.
